...how come mine gets rid of electrical interference at my house when every power strip I have doesn't? Mine's just a basic little Furman RP-8 power conditioner. I only bought it to tidy up my rack a little. I had heard all about what a ripoff they were, but I still wanted one because it looked nice in the rack, so I bought the bottom of the line model. I've never been one for playing through an amp at home until recently when I totally revamped my stage rig, so it was only then I noticed that all my basses picked up electrical interference that came through the amp, especially if I took my hand off the strings. At first, I was plugging directly into the wall or one of the 5 power strips I have. The noise was always there. Yesterday I broke out my Furman just to see what would happen. The noise was gone. I plugged the amp directly into the wall again. The noise was back. Back into the Furman. The noise was gone. Tried it with two other amps and got the same results. So now I'm wondering if there's more to these power conditioners than people say. If not, how come my equipment got quiet with it and noisy without it?
